Dark, luscious and rich, the Mauro Molino 2019 Barbera d'Asti LeRadici offers some dried fruit on the bouquet, along with crushed stone, powdery earth and dried cardamom or carob bean. The wine shows a dried nutty or hazelnut aroma that takes away from the fruit purity, especially a few minutes after the wine is poured into your glass. There is sweet blackberry or cherry confit on the close. ... More details

Winery
A wine with hints of cherry and red fruits alternating with spicy and sometimes floral hints. A Barbera of excellent structure and complexity with sweet and velvety tannins of good persistence.

Varietal: Barbera

The red Barbera grapes have been grown for centuries in Italy, with many ancient vineyards still in use for the cultivation of this particular varietal. In recent decades, many other countries have also begun to experiment with this fine varietal, to great effect. It isn't difficult to understand why their popularity has endured at home and abroad with vintners, as Barbera grapes are a vigorous strain that grows well in hot climates, where their high acidity can balance with their light tannins, and work wonderfully with the intense and aromatic nature of the fruit. Blueberries, raspberries, dried fruits and other hedgerow flavors are most commonly associated with Barbera, and whether drank young or aged for complexity in oak barrels, these grapes consistently produce excellent wines ideal for drinking alone or paired with many different foods.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
